Smoked Chipotle Pork Rellanos

Still using up some of that Zaaschilla chipotle cremosa smoked pork butt. lol






I blistered my chilies....




Let them steam in a baggie for easy peeling....



Mixed some smoked chipotle pork, onions and campesino.....







Rinsed, seeded and stuffed the chilies with the pork mixture....





Dusted with a bit of flour to make the batter stick....



The batter I used for this many rellanos was 3 beaten egg whites mixed with 3 TBS of flour and three beaten yolks added...







Dip and fry......








With the suggestions of a few smoking friends, I gathered up some mexican beer to try....







The chipotle smoked pork chili rellanos....




I was able to eat one and drink one frosty mug of beer....

Looks like I will be set with leftovers for a few days. :)

What beer did you prefer? Pacifico is what we prefer when we are fishing down on the Baja. I stumbled onto your blog several months ago when I was looking for a recipe. I now check out your blog almost daily. I enjoy your recipes, pictures, and updates from the ranch. Please keep up the good work.- Tristan in AZ

You did have some serious plans for you pork butt. Rellanos look great. I have some anaheims out in the garage from the garden that I need to do the same with.

Hi Tristan!
Thank you for the kind comments and for checking out my blog. I appreciate that! :)
Fishing on the Baja sounds like something I'd enjoy. Bet it's nice!
I tried the Tecate last night with one rellanos and by the time I ate and drank that one, I was too full to try more. lol
The beer is on ice right now so I'll try another one later today.
I have some Pacifico...so I'll give that a go next. :)

Sure appreciate you taking the time to leave a message Tristan....Thank you!!

lol Big Dude, I'm enjoying that smoked pork. I still have a bit left too. Not sure what I will make with it but I'll think of something.
Anaheims are my favorites...can't wait to see what you make with yours.
Thanks Big Dude!

'nother great lookin dish, i see you took the advice of the brethren and picked all the beers recommended, but seriously that looks great!!!

cowgirl said...

Thanks Kevin! :)
I bought a six pack of each and didn't really think about it, but now I have a whole case of beer to drink. Might take me awhile. lol

Hope your smoker is coming along well. Looking forward to seeing what all you smoke with it.

Thanks! :)

YUM! Those look awesome. I made green chile stew last night with some of the chiles I just roasted... tis the season. :)

Chris said...

Dang, Jeanie, those look perfect! Excellent job. Rellanos and beer, a marriage made in heaven.

Yum! I plan to make some chili rellenos in the next couple of weeks too! I figure I'll stuff them with beef roast of some sort since that is what I have around here- in great abundance. It pays to be a rancher!

Maybe I'll freeze the rest of the meat and make tamales later!

I love me some Dos Equis in the green bottle!

cowgirl said...

Thank you Heart of a Cowgirl!
You green chile stew sounds wonderful! I might have enough smoked pork left to make a batch.
Thanks for the idea! :)

cowgirl said...

Thank you Chris! I'm still working on all of this beer. So far it all tastes good. lol

cowgirl said...

Thank you South Dakota Cowgirl!
Beef rellanos sound great too. I think rellanos of any kind are good. lol
If you lived closer I'd share the Dos Equis with you. lol

I have to admit Cowchick...my very first rellanos and the only rellanos I have made originated for nowhere else other than right here on your blog :).

ps I love me some dos equis! And that was the only beer I recognized in your pile-o-beers

cowgirl said...

Wow... I didn't know that Mr D!
Hope they turned out well for ya.

I happen to have a few dos equis chilling right now. If you hurry, I'll save one for ya. :)
